COMOS Walkinside is a 3D Virtual Reality viewer specialized on loading massive Proccess Industry 3D models.
Thanks to the fact that COMOS Walkinside can load the full asset while keeping the performance; it allows the users to get fully immerse on the asset while sitting in the office.
COMOS Walkinside ITS allows the user to train on the virtual world even before the asset is ready for start up.
COMOS Walkinside ITS allows different type of training environment such us:
- Familiarization training where the trainee can get familiar in the future working environment even before he can access the asset.
- Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) trainings where the trainee can get used to the daily tasks he will have to perform.
- What if Scenarios that allow the trainee to be ready to react against different dangerous situations
- HSE Scenarios like fire, gas leak, evacuation, man down... can be set for the trainee to understand the different actions to be taken in such a dangerous scenario
- Collaborative Scenarios allow that multiple trainees are train together as team, which is how they will really work in the real environment

Page 14 Andoni Gonzalo / COMOS Plant Engineering Software 3D simulation training for oil field operators Total E&P Angola ITS project – “Pazflor” Instructors • Participated during the 3D model validation • Familiarization scenarios were developed by ITS instructors  no programming skill required! Operators • Replaced onsite visits and training in the shipyard • Spent 5 weeks on the ITS training system as part of their training • Avg. 1 day to familiarize with the ITS software Benefits Operators were familiar with the FPSO when they went offshore for the first time. They could immediately focus on their work to prepare the startup instead of losing time finding their way around the FPSO. The 3D model was used onboard the FPSO during startup phase, e.g. to locate valves.
